What is your definition of alcoholism and sobriety?

Over the summer, I made the decision to finally write a book, about my life. No sooner, did I set my intentions and shout it out to the universe, I won the book Sober As Fuck from Sarah Ordo on an Instagram contest. It was my first book I read on sobriety which inspired me even more. I highly recommend it. Once I started it, I couldn’t put it down.

It is so funny how similar all of our stories are, yet how incredibly different they are, as well as our journey towards sobriety. It looks different and feels different for everyone.

My life has been full of struggle, some out of my control that began before I was even born, when I was a child and had no control and in my adult-life, caused by my self-destructive, self-sabotaging behavior. 

My struggles and pain weren’t for nothing. They have become my gift. I share my story openly, in attempts to hold myself accountable while helping others, who feel alone with their own struggles.

My book is still in phase I. I will be sharing my story and life of addiction and sobriety journey, but I also want to include data, collected from others in the Sober Community.

I’d love for you to help me in collecting data, by filling out this form. (It is 100% anonymous, but feel free to reach out to me, if you’d like to share your story or network with me for extra support. Whether you are already on your own path to sobriety or are sober-curious, I’d love to hear from you.) Click on this link to complete the survey.

It’s the start that stops most people

Fear has dissipated.
I finally started on my book. 
On July 4, 2017, I finally put the goal down on paper to write a book. On July 10, 2017, I PUBLICLY declared my intention to write my book. Then I paused. I got stuck. Finally, I started setting some things in motion to get started, but to be honest I got paralyzed by fear, doubt and my lifelong desire to be understood, not rejected and to have everything figured out first crept up.

Tonight, I finally said “ENOUGH IS ENOUGH” and took ACTION because I am never going to reach the 9-month deadline that I set for myself by doing nothing and letting the words stay in my head.

I got 3 pages so far. If I can do 3 pages every other night and then an hour a day once Rebel is back in school in a few weeks, I will more than likely complete my 1st rough draft in less than 9 months.

Stay tuned. I don’t know what is going to come of this. Maybe only my close friends and my secretive haters will read it, maybe it will be a best-seller. You never know. All I know is that I do have a strong belief in myself and am no longer ashamed of my story. I know that my entrepreneurial spirit that I have summoned from within is telling me to keep living my truth. The Universe is telling me to further my desire, passion, and gift to help others. Thank goodness I LOVE to serve others. You know how the saying goes, love what you do and you will never work another day in your life.
